Summary
"The Tales of Ise is one of the most famous and important works of Japanese literature. Consisting of 125 poem tales loosely based on the life of the hero, Narihira, a model lover of the Heian period, they evoke a world in which beauty and refinement were a way of life. Covering such themes as forbidden love, devotion between friends and pleasure in nature, these lyrical episodes combine great elegance with subversive, experimental wit"--Back cover
